Wah Wah mountains (Utah), Thomas range (Utah) and Mexico. This is one of the rarest minerals. Gem quality material is found only at the Violet claims in the Wah Wah mountains. The mine there produces about one crystal per day. Of these, they are rarely cut into gemstones. Also known as bixbite, but that name is sometimes confused with bixbyite which is a manganese iron oxide.
Light pink to a very attractive deep red with a hint of violet. The color of the stone depends on what part of the mine it was found. Like emerald, inclusions are very common in red beryl.
Red Beryl is not enhanced.
Red Beryl is a member of the Beryl gemstone family.
